Make sure your diabetes is under control before you leave on holiday. Careful planning in advance can prevent blood sugar fluctuations, stomach problems, medication problems and foot problems, such as blisters.
Visit your doctor six to eight weeks before you plan to leave, so that lifestyle changes can be made if necessary. Get medications for diarrhoea and vomiting that will not interfere with your diabetes care plan. Take double the amount of medication for diabetes that you would normally need. Do not remove any pharmacy labels from your medication. Always carry two or three snacks with you. Make sure your shoes fit well and won't give you blisters. -
